Rated 5 out of 5 by LakeMama Great for my upcoming National Parks tour
I have not used this yet, but when I saw it I was convinced this was the perfect carry on bag for my upcoming National Parks tour via coach bus. We're allowed a suitcase under the bus, and a carry on (but not roller airplane style carry on) that will fit in bus overhead storage above my seat. The large zip pocket is great for documents, my iPad mini, etc., plenty of room inside to stuff binoculars, camera, raincoat, snack, etc. And water bottle stash on the side. I was impressed with how it zips up completely, absolutely no gap, so if it lays on its side or any which way, nothing will fall out. I did not go for monogramming since others weren't pleased with it, plus the aqua is so pretty, it doesn't need any other embellishment. I'll be on the road 12 days for my tour and this seems ideal for my purposes.

I was looking for a new work bag, something bigger, that could keep up with my ever changing needs throughout the week. This bag carries all of this and more. I have fit a laptop (with accessories), shoes, jacket, notebooks, planner, wallet, coffee and water bottle all in this bag at once! Not to mention the awesome organized compartment on the front! No more clutter! I highly recommend this bag if you were looking for a work bag (and the cute teal pattern is great)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bailegh Great bag and color.
Love the bag but am very disappointed with the monogram. It is so small and not worth the money. It is placed toward the top by the handles when I wish it were placed on the side on the pocket flap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rheck Good looking bag
This is a great bag as far a color and storage goes. I thought the handles were suppose to velcro together. The one I just received did not have any velcro on the handles. That was one of the main reasons I had ordered it. Still keeping the bag anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QuiltmomHope One tweak away from perfection
Just received. Bag is larger than it appears. Width is listed as 20 inches--that is the length of the zipper. When opened up to rectangle, width of bag is 14 inches by 7 inches deep so it will qualify as the second "personal item" for most airlines.
Lightweight and roomy, nicely lined. Love the print--so glad I ordered before it sold out/went on backorder. Inside the zippered front pocket, with all the small organizer bits, is a flat pocket that is large enough to hold an iPad. Nice--that way it won't flop around inside the main compartment. Wish the pocket inside the main compartment went all the way to the bottom of the bag--it is large and hangs from the top.
On the back there is an open pocket with a velcro closure and, on the outside of the pocket there is a strap which has velcro that keeps it flat on the outside of the pocket. This strap can be un-stuck and slipped over an extended suitcase handle. The bag will likely slide down and hang in front/on top of the suitcase, rather than sitting on the top edge of the suitcase. If Bean were to add a second strap down on the black, at the bottom of the rear pocket, it would sit on top of the suitcase, which would be much better for me. Since I sew, luckily I can add this second strap easily before my next trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 Nice match for my LLBEAN carry on!
I ordered this tote to go with my carry on that matches it. I like that the handles velcro together so as to not fall down, and create a situation where I am struggling to keep them together! It's roomy, and is easy to clean out if I were to have a spill. I like that it's an upright posture naturally, rather than East-West, too. I can carry a small purse inside to use when I arrive at my destination, while the tote counts as my "purse" while on a flight. I love the color combination and durability. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FamShop Roomy with lots of pockets
I love the bag just a little disappointed with the monogram. It is so small I can hardly see it. Not worth the money to have it monogramed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kml482 Awesome Tote Bag
I purchased this tote as a gift for a family member. It is lightweight but VERY durable, the new color/print is beautiful, monogram looked great in white and I think she'll love it! I have the same tote in solid red and it is great for back and forth to work, can hold my lunch, shoes for winter travel, much more and keeps everything dry! I use it as a carry-on for air travel and it's just perfect! Has zipper pockets inside and out which are great, and a side mesh pocket perfect for a water bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by danielleelizabeth Perfect Tote!
I bought this tote before a trip to Orlando. It was perfect for carrying swimsuits, towels, spare flip flops, and other essentials. There is a tremendous amount of space inside the bag and it fit comfortably over my shoulder. The color and pattern is cute and easy to spot. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BettyB66 Very useful tote in lovely print and teal color
I got this tote in the mail last week and already used it to haul lots of stuff needed when I attended a frigid Packer game this past weekend. Lots of things fit in it, it is light weight, attractive, and I will be able to use it very often. Along with the roll-under bag, I may not have to bring a check-in when traveling on week-long vacations.
